Increasingly, our outdoor spaces seem to mimic our indoor spaces. This ‘blurring of the lines’ is largely as a result of developments in more hard-wearing materials, and associated technology.

With that in mind, and with summer on our doorstep, Newport Lighting turns their focus to exterior lighting. Their ASTRO offering reflects the latest European trends.

As one of Britain’s leading, and award-winning, lighting design brands, ASTRO recently unveiled several new outdoor collections at Euroluce in Milan. This varied exterior lighting collection is characterized by its considered simplicity and reflects the synthesis of timeless design principles and brand-new finishes.

A favourite of Newport Lighting’s is the moon-like Eclipse Wall Light (cover image) that floats on walls whilst emanating a soft lunar glow.

Also worth a mention is the sleek and stylish Harvard Wall Light, available in fashion-forward black, polished stainless steel, bronze and brass.


When it comes to finishes, expect robust antique brass textures that add a chic industrial style; personified here in the Cabin lighting range.

Other finishes include polished brass, nickel and chrome; encompassing a more refined aesthetic, whilst matte textured black, white and grey create a contemporary impression.

Included in the myriad of finishes is the option of frosted glass. This provides a less fussy overall aesthetic whilst diffusing the light from these lamps.

To make your outdoors feel like true extensions of your indoors – extending your alfresco entertaining hours – consider these hardworking yet stylish lighting options by ASTRO available from Newport Lighting.
